There was a time when German tanks were a most unwelcome sight in Eastern Europe. Today, however, the rolling Rheinmetall Leopards in Warsaw and Kyiv are more popular than anything else. But while Poland already has several of the world’s most powerful main battle tanks in its barracks, Ukraine must continue to wait for the Leopard 2 tanks.

Berlin doesn’t want to deliver – at least not before all the other neo-allied ones also deliver. This was emphasized again at the meeting with allies at the US army base in Ramstein (D) on Friday.
